Talking about why she wants to be part of the change, Priyanka said, “I want my kids to grow up in a world where the world leaders have listened to Greta’s (Thunberg) generation, where the climate crisis is contained if not averted, where a woman’s ability to succeed is a basic human right and not based on geography and chance.”

Priyanka also shared a candid picture of herself prepping for the chat in her car. In the picture, she is seen sitting with papers spread all over and around her. The actor captioned the picture, “In the “office” for my fireside chat with Maria Forbes.”

She also shared a happy picture of herself having a hearty laugh with Dr. Ngozi at the meet. Introducing her to her fans, she wrote in the caption, “Dr Ngozi on behalf of Gavi has vaccinated 86% of the world’s children and has saved over 13 million lives since 2000. She is truly doing God’s work. Dr. Ngozi is an economist, international development expert and the Chair of @gavialliance - an incredible organization that has helped immunize more than 760 million children and saved 13 million lives. The proof is in the numbers, and it’s evident that with organizations like Gavi and its amazing partners like @unicef and @who, we can eradicate extreme poverty. #Davos2020.”
